    I've been needing something to distract me recently because life kinda sucks, so I've started painting up a cheapo Ratchet from Woolies. He's not too bad, but is in dire need of paint.

    Alright, sexy. Let's get you into ship-shape.

    The red needs a bit of cleanup and maybe another coat on the shoulders, but other than that, Robot Mode's a marked improvement.
    I'll paint in the vehicle mode's windows a bit later, maybe add a panel line wash too.

    Got mine at Aldi. Mostly just got him for spare parts, but otherwise have no idea what to do with him.

    I'm on the fence with this guy. I like what you've done so far. How is the bot mode articulation wise? Can we get some poses?

    No knees, no thighs. Kinda lame down there, but his arms are alright.
    I'll take some more photos when the thing's done!

    I've never seen this figure before. It looks delightfully bad, might get one. Quite an improvement you've made here!
